Abstract


Research indicates safety climate is used to measure the safety of an organization. However, very few studies examine the status of safety climate in the manufacturing sector. This paper aims to explicate the status of safety climate in the Indian manufacturing sector. Four hundred fifty employees from 13 manufacturing industries in Karnataka were sampled. Perception data about the safety in their respective plants was collected using self-reporting questionnaires. The data was subjected to factor analysis, and Partial Least Squares regression was run to determine the nature of the relationships the constructs shared with Safety Climate.
